The Report on Racial Disparity in Prosecution in Baltimore: A Discussion on the Findings and the Path Forward

John and Frances Angelos Law Center
Moot Court

"Although racial disproportionality in mass incarceration is well-established, less is known about the possible sources of racial inequality in prosecution." 

In March 2022, independent researchers from the University of Maryland and Harvard University released a report examining racial differences in cases dispositions, charging and sentencing in Baltimore. The report, which analyzed data from Baltimore City Circuit Court cases in 2017 and 2018, offers new insights into the role that race plays in Baltimore's criminal legal system.

Please join the University of Baltimore School of Law's Center for Criminal Justice Reform for a discussion surrounding the implications of this report for policy and practice. The dialogue, focused on interpreting the findings and where we go from here, will moderated by Prof. David Jaros, Faculty Director at the Center for Criminal Justice Reform, and will feature the following panelists:

• Marilyn Mosby, State's Attorney for Baltimore City
• Natasha Dartigue, Deputy District Defender for Baltimore City
• Dayvon Love, Director of Public Policy, Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle
• Brian Johnson, Professor, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, University of Maryland (report author).

The discussion will be in-person in the Moot Courtroom, but we also will live stream the event on Zoom for those who cannot attend in person. Register here to watch on Zoom. To attend in person, please register below.
